It’s summertime and the weather is already unbearably hot (at least where I live.) People are no doubt flocking to find relief in the typical ways; ice-cream, air conditioning, and yes, a cool dip in the ocean. But you might want to hold off on that last one.
I don’t think I’m shocking anyone when I say that the ocean is filled with all sorts of wildlife. But even in the presence of a great-white shark, man is still more dangerous. This poor guy looks like he’s been injured by a boat but nobody’s rushing out to help him anytime soon. The injury is likely what caused him to travel into shallower waters. It just goes to show that our impact on nature is both unavoidable and destructive. Future spottings suggest this shark managed to heal up and return to open water.
